About these Port St Joe wedding photos...
Kellie Ann and Derek were married on the Emerald Coast at a house on the beach in Port St. Joe, FL. The house was on Watermark Way and there was another house next door that they also rented for guests. The section of beach here in Port St. Joe is always quiet and we didn't see anyone else on the beach. It was perfect!
I was really looking forward to meeting Kellie Ann in person - we had talked on the phone and gone over all of her wedding details. I was really excited to see her Lilly Pulitzer theme! I also couldn't wait to meet their dog, Rudy, who is named after Rudy Giuliani. Derek is a huge republican so Kellie Ann's wedding gift to him was a pair of red and blue elephant cufflinks.
Kellie Ann's friend is a florist (she owns My Secret Garden) and she did all of the flowers for the wedding. She also included Kellie Ann's grandmother's ring into her bouquet.
The Bo Spring Band performed for the reception and Christy at Panache Tent and Event did the coordinating.
We have been photographing more and more weddings in the Emerald Coast area - we love Port St Joe as well as Cape San Blas, Mexico Beach and St. George Island. This house on Watermark Way was right next to the new Windmark community. Windmark has a nice beach area (it is a little smaller than Cape San Blas) and it also has a nice park and community building that can be used as a chapel or as a reception hall.
